Encrypted Text: The last percent {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2010 5:32PM Fully agree with you on this one Chase. My guild's rogues and I have actually gotten into 3 way TotT trades when all three of us are on the raid and because of our diligent use of this, we are always topping the charts.

Does this mean that I still don't worry about the pure DPS classes getting over taken by those damnable hybrids, of course not.

Another item that helps to squeeze out more dps is knowing when to switch your gems to ArPen from when you're upping your gearscore with AP and Agil.

Feb 1st 2010 11:26AM I too LOVE the black war-raptor. Man, back in the day, grinding up the 30/30/30 tokens was SUCH a chore, but when I finally got it, I must have sat in Ogri for half-an hour just making it roar!!!

The Queue: Pony games {WoW}

Jan 28th 2010 11:57AM While raiding with my guild last night, I was amazed at the fact that more than one of my guildies continually has money problems, to the point that they needed to borrow to do repairs. This struck me as odd, because as a responsible raider, I start getting pretty nervous if my bank account ever drops below 4 figures. Why do I keep a couple grand around for a rainy day fund? Honestly, I have no reason. I rarely spend more in a day than I make in a day, and big purchases are always planned out. While I haven't perfected all of my gem slots and/or enchants, I keep my toons pretty well maintained.

This got me to thinking, what is the average bank account at in WOW? I've seen some guilds that have 6 figures in the bank, I've seen some guilds that have 6G in the bank. I keep an average of 2K on my main, and prolly around a grand on alts that are played regularly.

How much money do WOW players keep around?

Breakfast topic: What will you set your armory pose as? {WoW}

Insider Trader: What to sell, what to sell {WoW}

Jan 15th 2010 5:39PM Wow! I hadn't heard that. I wonder if they'd provide parity to herbalism for Frost Lotus?

You wouldn't like me when I'm hungry {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2010 10:52PM Itanius, a fair and respectful response. As I also run a DK Tank as an alt, I certainly understand this. The mobs do get crazy pathing and controlling it is difficult to manage it with us crazy DPSers running around. None the less, 9 out of 10 tanks I see these days don't even bother to control the direction of the mobs they pull.

I make a distinct point of complimenting tanks when they properly face the mobs. It is something up there with DPS properly using our interrupts and CC. All apparently lost arts, and yet, all of which should be respected.

Jan 3rd 2010 10:30PM As a well geared rogue who is running DPS right there beside you, please tanks, keep one thing in mind.

If you turn the back of the mobs to the party, we'll do MORE DAMAGE! Seriously, when did this get forgotten? I'm next to my tank, stealthed away and ready to be his/her right hand man. Low and behold, they open their gambit and sit down and take their damage. Healers are healing, and we're all forced to open up. Seriously tanks, would it be so difficult to turn the mobs away?!? I'm stealthed, Tricks of the Traded up, poisons dripping, garotte jumping at the chance of decimating the mob that is hurting you and you're going to make me face him? You remember that whole thing about how neither you nor the mob can parry or dodge an attack from behind you right?

So from a math perspective, a mob isn't turned, I'm forced to stealth to its rear to open my game, and it takes me ~ 3 seconds more. I do 4.5K dps on the avg PUG. Do you want to sit there and take damage or do you want me to kill it?

So tanks everywhere, please do your friendly and loving DPS a favor. Turn the mobs away from us and everything will go a hell of a lot smoother and faster. We want to kill those crazy mobs that are assaulting you, we really do, so help us help you. Cause if you don't, they might turn on our sorry, squishy asses and we don't like that!!!
